AussieTheatre has two double passes to giveaway to Pinchgut Opera’s Bajazet at the City Recital Hall on 7 July, 7pm.
Bajazet is a rarely performed operatic gem that premiered in Verona in 1735. The performance features an array of brilliant arias designed to showcase the incredible talents of the Baroque artists.
Covering themes of betrayal, love and lust, Bajazet tells a tale full of romantic entanglement and love triangles. Tamerlano, Emperor of the Tartars, has conquered Bajazet, Emperor of the Turks, but desires the hand of Bajazet’s daughter Asteria. Meanwhile Tamerlano has already promised to marry Irene, princess of Trebisond. To solve his problem, Tamerlano hands Irene off to Andronico, his Greek ally. However, Andronico is also in love with Asteria.
Directed by the acclaimed Thomas de Mallet Burgess, Bajazet features an exceptional cast including Hadleigh Adams in the title role (Castor & Pollux), alongside American counter-tenor Christopher Lowrey (Faramondo). The performance will also see a number of exceptional period instrument players from Australia and around the world in the Orchestra of the Antipodes, led by Matthew Greco.
Competition closes July 1 at 3pm AEST. Winners will be contacted via email/phone.
